Are you thinking about doing your own hair and makeup? Many women choose to style themselves to save a bit of money. If you are considering it, read DIY Beauty or Salon Splurge to weigh the pros and cons.
Define Your Needs
Before you can find your perfect beautician, you need to have a good idea of what you need. Are you hoping to have an intricate updo or simple curls? Are you planning a natural beauty look or red carpet glam makeup? It also differs if you are planning to have both your hair and makeup done professionally, or if you plan to do one or the other on your own.
Once you have a good idea of how you want to look on your big day, you can start looking for a stylist who can create that look for you. Some hairstylists specialize in updos, while others prefer to do blowouts or other event looks. The beautician you choose should specialize in what you need. You might also end up with two separate stylists; one for your hair and one for your makeup.
Do Your Research
You will likely get suggestions for various stylists from friends and family. That is great, but don’t rely on those recommendations alone! Read reviews online and interview stylists yourself. Most professional makeup and hair stylists will be able to give you a list of references whom you can call. Take your time to call as many as you need in order to decide on a stylist.

Do Trial Runs
Once you’ve found a beautician that you love, your search isn’t quite over! You should still plan a trial run. Scheduling your trial run about 3 months before your big day should give you plenty of time. This way, if it doesn’t go well, you’ll still have enough time to book another stylist. Or, if you want to try a different look and need to schedule another trial, you’ll have time to do that as well. Don’t forget to bring any accessories, like your necklace and tiara with you to your trial! You want your trial run look to be as close to your look for the big day as it can be. This will give you the most realistic idea of whether this is the right stylist for you.
